    Fever, headache and muscle ache after receiving last rabies shot


    I am experiencing headache now, muscle aches all over my body and some pain sensation at the bottom back of my spine after receiving my last rabies shot (5th rabies shot) just 2 days ago. Yesterday I experienced very high fever (39C), severe headache, muscle spasms, chills, pain at the back of the spine. These symptoms look like rabies symptoms - its almost as if I got infected by rabies through rabies vaccine???

    Is this normal or has the vaccine failed and I need to go to the doctor?

    My anti rabies regimen had me administered 5 shots in total. I was not able to get the HRIG for rabies because it was unavailable. The vaccine given to me was Speeda, Purified Rabies Vaccine (Vero Cell).

    *Edit update - as of now, I have not had a fever since and my headache lessened, but I am experiencing sudden sensations usually on my hands and legs. These sensations are not painful. I think the closest word to describe it is Paresthesia.

    My wrists and neck also feel the need to be stretched.
